Have had this case for a few weeks, and overall it’s just a really compact, comfortable, and overall excellent clarinet case. The clarinets float inside foam cutouts, which is great because I don’t think I’ll have to get it adjusted as often. You don’t get as much storage space as something like an Altieri bag, but there’s plenty of room for reeds, extra mouthpieces, swab on the inside, and in the pockets. Outside music pocket can expand to fit a horse, but fair warning it will not fit a full sized orchestral folder. I wish the second outside misc. pocket was a little bigger— I have to put my old K&M stand (with the longer stem) in there, as it doesn’t fit in the bell, and along with the rain cover, that doesn’t leave a lot of room for much else. The newer K&M stands which fit in the bell are better for this case. The backpack straps are awesome— Had a little trouble attaching them (you might not, I’m not all that handy), but there’s a video on Bonnas youtube page that explains it. Heard complaints that barrel cutouts weren’t large enough to fit new backun barrels like the MoBa, but they seem to have been expanded. Highly recommend this case!
All around a great case, very, very lightweight. Looks classy and backpack straps are quite comfortable. It feels very well made and I hope to get many years of use out of it. There is less room in the front pocket for music/reeds/etc than other case brands such as Altieri, but still enough if you don’t go overboard. I just carry an extra tote bag with any extra knick-knacks that can’t fit in the case and problem solved.
On Chuck Levin's: quality customer service, quick shipping and delivery On the product: sturdy, high quality, everything I was expecting This case fits everything I need! The backpack straps are high quality (the main reason I wanted this case: the backpack straps), there was also an optional shoulder strap, and the case even came with a rain cover! It couldn't be more perfect. The case is thin and lightweight, but it is also quite sturdy. I look forward to travelling with it.
